“Song of the Caged Bird” by Lindsey Stirling
This song has inspired me from the first day I heard it. This idea is so simple. The bird flies around and around the cage most liking lost and trying to find a way out. If you open that door it will for sure fly out. If you own a bird you know that it is continuously plotting to get out of the cage. It is determined to get out of that cage.
In our lives we tend to be very lost in a routine. Get up, shower, go to work, etc.! When we have a problem it tends to circle until we solve it. The idea of the caged bird is to never give up because one day that door is going to open for you and you need to be ready to get out and find your way! You need to be ready to solve that problem in your life. Any goal in life you are trying to achieve you may have to try again and again until you finally get there. You may have to do the same thing over and over again just to get where you want to be in life.
Now I do not know what Lindsey’s real meaning to this song is for her, but to me it means never giving up. It means there will someday be an open door that you better take. A chance that was never there before, or always there and you finally figured out how to take it. It means to always be ready even if everyday has been exactly like the last there still is the chance that the next day will be different, it will be better. Most birds don’t sit at the bottom of the cage, they are up high figuring out how the heck to get out of that cage. Just the same in life; we shouldn’t be sitting at the bottom of it doing nothing we should be reaching up as high as we can to see what kind of opportunities we have with our lives. Beside everyone knows what is on the bottom of a bird cage and we certainly don’t want to be walking around in that part of our lives either.
Your chance to soar is coming are you ready for it? Are you reaching for it?
Please take some time to listen to the song it is beautiful and while you are listening please just take a moment and think about where you want to be in life and where your life is going now.
